Maharaja Blues

by Richard Staines & Satinder Grewal

Is "Maharaja Blues" the first ever fusion album of Mississippi Slide Blues and Indian rhythms? Probably. Who would ever have thought this combo of beating tabla and euphoric slide blues would have worked so well? Sit back, enjoy, the wondrous sound.

Album Notes
Maharaja Blues is the culmination of the flow of two talented rivers, Richard and Satinder as they merge with the great Mississippi, fusing the sound of the beating tabla along with the euphoric slide blues. During 2011 the duo started to perform more frequently together and the sound was greatly received. This album commemorates and celebrates the distinctive sound produced by the combination of the duo's rhythm and harmony, as well as the good times had during this period.

Richard Staines was born in South Wales. He has been actively involved in all sorts of music from a young age. He has lived and performed in many countries though has been mainly based in London. In recent years his love of the blues has blossomed and his skills on slide guitar have gone from strength to strength. He thoroughly enjoys song-writing, arranging, and composing.

Satinder Grewal, having started playing tabla at the age of 9, continued with the passion for the Indian percussion instrument throughout his early years. He recently rediscovered his affinity for the tabla and has been playing at gigs around London, creating a respectable fan-base. He has transitioned from collaborating with traditional Indian musicians playing instruments such as sarangi, to western style instruments - notably the guitar. Through hours of enjoyable yet concentrated practise, he has honed his technical abilities which has allowed him to form half of the Maharaja Blues.

"The production of this CD has been a wonderful experience and we hope you enjoy listening to it."
